THE 69 EYES To Support CRADLE OF FILTH On North American Tour

Finnish goth metallers THE 69 EYES have been confirmed as direct support for CRADLE OF FILTH on a two-month North American tour beginning in January 2007. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.

As previously reported, THE 69 EYES are currently in the studio recording their new album, "Angels", with producers Hiili Hiilesmaa and Johnny Lee Michaels — the same team that was responsible for the band's last CD, "Devils". The album will be out through Virgin/EMI in the early 2007.

The first single from "Angels", entitled "Perfect Skin", has already been completed and is available for streaming from EMI Finland's jukebox at this location. The commercial release of the single will be closer to the end of the year/January 2007, depending on the country. The additional tracks on the single will be live versions of "Devils", "Christina Death" and "I Just Want to Have Something to Do" (originally written and performed by THE RAMONES), recorded at the sold-out Whisky A Go-Go show in Hollywood in March 2006. The band will film a video for "Perfect Skin" with director Ralf Strathmann in Hollywood in mid-October.

In other news, THE 69 EYES has announced that Cleopatra Records is releasing the band's entire back catalogue in the U.S. Currently available are the "Framed In Blood - The Very Blessed Of…" compilation CD and the "Helsinki Vampires" live album plus a DVD containing the band's videos. Later on this year and in 2007, the "Paris Kills" and "Blessed Be" albums will follow.

Also on THE 69 EYES front, "Zombie Love – Vampires, Ghosts and The 69 Eyes", a hard-cover comic book by the band' singer, Jyrki 69, came out in September. It is a beautiful collection of Jyrki's old-school goth 'n' roll comics going back all the way to the '80s published by Deggael Communications. The first signed edition of 1,000 was immediately sold out from the publisher but the new regular edition is on its way. Meanwhile, Ville Juurikkala's two-year photographic journey with THE 69 EYES, called "Route 69", will come out in October. Jyrki has also been writing comments from the road for the book. It will be published by Like.
